the end of october. the downside of going early is this blend is not as friendly to the environment. >> the winter blend of gasoline is a similar type of gasoline that doesn't have as stringent air pollution requirements. with summer months, a cleaner version is necessary to reduce ozone when possible. winter gasoline doesn't have to be quite as stringent. >> reporter: no one is saying this is going to be a magic wand by moving to the winter blend earlier, but they do believe, at least some analysts do, that it could drop prices perhaps in the next week by 15 to 20 cents. why did these prices skyrocket? well, the thought is you had these two major refine reproblems. one that we're all aware of back in august when the chevron refinery in richmond got fire. just last week you had a problem in southern california, an exxonmobil refinery in torrance shut down because of a power failure. it finally resumed production this past friday. reporting live, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much. >>> i'm thinking we all need to commute to work together. car pool. >> commute is a

the federal government take advantage of the low interest rate environment and issue $500 billion in 30-year bonds to fix the nation's infrastructure. believe me, the market would lap it up. fifth, i would slap tariffs on good made by countries that pollute when they make those countries. that would stop the endless parade of jobs migrating from our country to other countries that don't. they have a ridiculous competitive advantage over us. six, i would insist there be a course in high school called money where kids could learn what money is, how to save, how to invest. if people have financial literacy, they would be going to the stock market and they could learn to speculate wisely, perhaps to find their own therapeutics. seventh, i would appoint a steven jobs memorial competitiveness czar to figure out how our businesses could be made more competitive and find out what they need in order to hire and expand, not government handouts but perhaps trying to get educated engineers trying to help these companies. i would reappoint ben bernanke as chairman of the federal reserve. if it weren't fo
